This next-generation operating system will utilize the omnipotence of the internet to create a secure, solid experience that's better than what's expected by users.

Intel Tiger Rapids prototype notebooks feature dual screens

Dual-screen laptops might just be the next trend in consumer PCs, at least if ASUS, Lenovo, and Intel have their way.

They can have two screens separated by a hinge and can even have those two screens be of different types. That’s definitely the idea behind Intel’s Tiger Rapids, a prototype dual-screen notebook that has a regular LCD screen on one side and stylus-enabled e-paper display on the other.

In fact, it's also coming sooner, around the third quarter of the year.

ASUS showed up at Computex 2018 with a lot of new hardware in tow. Most of this is what we'd normally expect from ASUS and its Republic of Gamers arm - new notebooks, desktops, and accessories meant to satisfy the mainstream users, workaholics, and gamers among us.
